A few days ago, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was the first to publicly express skepticism about the “dream ticket” of Clinton-Obama or Obama-Clinton. The campaign of Hillary Clinton had given out a suggestion of a possible “Clinton-Obama” ticket.
Clinton’s husband, former United States President Bill Clinton said that a Clinton-Obama ticket would be “unbeatable.”
However, Democratic co-frontrunner had harsh words to say about such an idea. In front of a crowd in Mississippi before the state had its primary contest on March 11, Obama said to voters that they can only pick either him or Clinton. He asked Clinton what made her think he would make a great vice-president if she thinks he’s not ready to be president.
Several days ago, Nancy Pelosi expressed her skepticism. She said that a ticket like that would be impossible.
On Thursday, March 13, Pelosi again said that the ticket won’t have the names of Clinton and Obama on it. This time, she had gone more in-depth on the ticket.
“I do think we will have a dream team, it just won’t be those two names,” Pelosi said. She added: “Whoever our nominee is and whoever he or she is and whoever he or she chooses, will be a dream team as the Democrats go forward.”
She expressed that Clinton-Obama or Obama-Clinton will not be the ticket.
So far, Pelosi has remained neutral in the Democratic race. She said that there will be a nominee before the Democratic National Convention set in Denver, Colorado, this coming August.
Pelosi said that the remaining superdelegates cannot afford to wait in the middle any longer and that they must pick a candidate immediately.
